Wow! Diamond in the rough! You wouldn't guess by the exterior that the Monterey Fish House served as many delicious and unique offerings as it does. Think seafood with Italian influences. Squid parmesan. BBQ grilled octopus. Prawn pasta. The list goes on. Delicious. Quaint dining...More

Had the most delicious Alaskan halibut with capers in lemon sauce. Soup is wonderful and the service prompt, friendly, and attentive. Casual & somewhat loud but superior dinner.
